DACA reinstated by Federal Court

A federal court has ruled that the order restricting DACA that was passed by USCIS is invalid.  As such, the agency has been ordered to reinstate DACA to it’s original form, which was passed by President Obama in 2012.  Accordingly, USCIS has been instructed to extend DACA permits from one year to two years (for those who received work permits valid for only 1 year).   More importantly, the court’s order has also instructed USCIS to accept FIRST-TIME applicants, which had been rejected by USCIS.
